Morality (from the Latin moralities "manner, character, proper behavior") is a sense of
behavioral conduct that differentiates intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are
good (or right) and bad (or wrong). A moral code is a system of morality (for example, according
to a particular philosophy, religion, culture, etc.) and a moral is any one practice or teaching

part right and wrong acts are classified as such because they are thought to cause benefit
or harm, but it is possible that many moral beliefs are based on prejudice, ignorance or
even hatred.[clarification needed] This sense of the term is addressed by descriptive ethics.
In its "normative" sense, morality refers directly to what is right and wrong, regardless of
what specific individuals think. It could be defined as the conduct of the ideal "moral"
person in a certain situation. This usage of the term is characterized by "definitive"
